Nail Art

Dedicated to the infinite joys of nail art and design: handpaint, airbrush, colored acrylics and gels.

 

Excel with Gels

Who says you can’t create a beautiful array of nail art with gels? Certainly not these seven techs, who show you the step-by-steps for some designs your clients will love.


Vibrant Dragonfly


1. Apply a thin layer of Backscratchers’ Aqua Gel (clear) to the entire nail. Cure. Apply Backscratchers’ Designer Gel in blue to the entire nail. Cure.


2. Use Backscratchers’ Designer Gel in black to create four dots (the dragonfly body). Use Designer Gel in yellow to create the wings. Use Designer Gel in white to create dots in a flight pattern. Cure.


3. Apply a thin layer of Backscratchers’ ICE topcoat over the entire design. Using your fingertip, apply six Backscratchers’ Fuchsia Micro Beads to the wings. (Static will keep the bead stuck to your finger as you place it in a rolling motion onto the nail.) If needed, use tweezers to move the beads. Cure.
